Thank you, Ole Asbjoern Riis
Ole Asbjoern Riis is my daddy, and he is also a genuine, honest-to-god superhero.
The reason for using this particular quote on this picture for him is three-fold:
- Because he does. He lights up a room like… well – like the sunshine!
- Because he showed me my very first sunset, and when it was over I turned to him with awe and said, “Do it again, Daddy! Do it AGAIN”
- Because of one of his favourite ever songs (from which this quote is taken). It’s by a lady called Randy Crawford and I remember my dad discovering her album Secret Combination and then playing it OBSESSIVELY, particularly in the car as he drove us round the countryside. I cannot listen to this song without bawling my eyes out. She says it all far more eloquently than I ever could.
Thank you, Daddy, for everything. There are no words…
